Generally speaking, studio rom-coms have never done a great service to women, usually portraying them as highly emotional or unstable or simply unable to function without a man by their side. And in 2014, that trend continues with “The Other Woman,” in which a trio of women decide to invest a lot of time and energy to get vengeance on the dude who was two-timing all of them.
Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton play the scorned trio who take an already improbable, hysterical premise one step further by teaming up to take down Dude From “Game of Thrones” Who Cheated On Them by exposing his financial world scheming or something (timely!). And there there is Nicki Minaj for some reason, a scene with Upton moving in slow motion in a bikini (obvs) and another sequence with Mann that’s pretty much a rip-off from “The 40-Year-Old Virgin.” Hilarious!
The script for this by Melissa Stack was on the 2007 Black List so perhaps that’s something, but we’ll see when this opens on April 25, 2014.
